What happens in 1 minute on the internet?

1 minute is a long time online.  

1 minute on the internet might not seem like a lot of time, but with billions of people using the internet every day, you’d be surprised at what gets done. 

Have you ever wondered what happens in one minute on the internet? 

As it turns out, a whole lot. Like, a lot! 

Let’s take a look at some surprising findings from Domo’s Data Never Sleeps 9.0 infographic

We worked from home (obviously)
